Survey is now closed.  Results to be posted soon.

This officially unofficial survey (18 quick questions) will provide compensation information gathered from survey information received voluntarily from individuals holding the CIH certification, as well as those with the CSP, CHMM certifications and/or the designation of ASP. Additionally, we invite practicing health and safety professionals (including EHS practitioners) who do not have one of the aforementioned certifications/designations (or have a different certification/designation) to contribute to the survey. The larger and more relevant the survey population, the better the survey results!

Upon completion of the survey period, OHShub will compile the data and post the results and related statistics on our website. All entries are anonymous and no identifying data will be stored. While we do not guarantee the accuracy of the survey results, we ask that all contributors answer the questions as complete and accurate as possible. For questions or comments, please contact us.
